Xtreme Card is Up & Beach in the Derby

Well, we are going to try and take a stab at this Extreme Horsepower card at Georgian Downs. I am away this week, but I think I can at least give it a shot.

For those who are interested in spending a Saturday night with some interesting races and some potential box car payoffs, here is a copy of the program.

I still have to get Lou the Whip to add his thoughts as we get closer to race time.

On Saturday, the Canadian Pacing Derby elims are, well cut down to one elim. This race is for 3yo pacers as well as older (I was there when 3YO Indian Alert won, way back when). I wonder if Woodbine would have asked Somebeach to enter, say for free. 1) We are probably not going to see him race in this event and 2) I think he'd win easily. It would be, in my opinion, perhaps the most entertaining race of the decade.

Regardless, it is a good field and should be a very nice race.

If you go to the Georgian Downs web site to print out a program make sure it is for Aug 9th before you waste the ink and paper.
